Half Full Friday!

Half Full Friday is a series of weekly posts that Eyegirl originally started in June 2009.  We believe that a lot of our happiness is determined by our attitude about the things that happen to us.  So by participating, I'm deciding to see the glass as half full instead of half empty; I'm choosing to concentrate on the positives instead of dwelling on the negatives.  The Half Full Friday posts are a way to do just that.  They're a list of the things in my life that have brought me happiness over the past week.  I'm determined to find something good in each day.  Are you?

For the next week, I'd like to challenge each of you to keep a list of at least one thing that brought you happiness each day.  Be sure to link up here once you've posted your list!  (This isn't a blog hop so please only link up if you've participated by posting your happy list on your own blog.  Thanks!)
~I'm happy because...
Chico is doing a lot better!

School starts on Monday!  

My student loan proceeds finally came in!

I got most of my textbooks and school supplies!

I'm getting a haircut this afternoon!  

I bought myself a pretty dress!
On Sunday, Chico started walking better.  On Monday, he walked almost normally.  By Tuesday, he was walking completely normally.  My student loan funds didn't come in until Wednesday.  Since Chico was doing so much better, I wondered if maybe he just hurt his leg maybe, and now it's healed up?!  After much thoughtful consideration, I decided to just watch him very, very closely and if I see any signs it's bothering him again, I'll make an appointment for the vet right away.  So far, so good!  

I need to give a huge *THANK YOU* to Pip's mom for researching and emailing me some information on companies that provide financial assistance for pet medical care.  It was very much appreciated.  I'd also like to thank everyone who offered prayers for my baby boy.  I love how we all look out for and help one another in Blogville.  
Do you like nail polish?  One of my bloggy buddies has a nail polish blog.  She used to post mostly on another blog, but now she's starting to do more on her own again.  She wants to build her readership back up, so if you're into polishes, visit Smoochiefrog and be sure to tell her I sent you.  
Got most of my textbooks yesterday.  One is on back order so I couldn't get it yet.  I still need to purchase two computer programs too.    Looking through the textbooks makes it seem all so real that school starts on Monday.  I already have homework for 2 different classes.  I also have a work meeting this morning.  I just want to enjoy the last of my summer vacay and not even have to think about school.  
Speaking of school, I don't know how much I'll be around next week.  I don't work any closing shifts this semester except for Friday, so once my school day is done, I can go home.  I'm hoping I'll have a little more time now, especially since it seems like I'm going to have a LOT of homework this semester.  At least 2 classes have weekly quizzes, two others have weekly assignments, so I'll need to keep up on everything.  I'm not sure what the fifth class will be like yet.    

My Monday and Wednesday posts will be pre-posted.  I'm not sure about Friday's post yet.  I'll try to visit everyone at least once next week, but I'm not going to make any promises.

I am so glad to hear Chico is doing better! I was worrying about the little guy! That was so nice of Pip's mom to look into that stuff for you! What a lady!

I'm not into nail poish, but Gracie is making me! We painted our nails the other day purple with a glitter overlay and I have to say I really liked it! I think I'm going to try orange next!

I'm so glad Chico is doing better. It's tough when our furry friends are feeling bad.

Thank you for the shout out! Much appreciated! You're the best.
